When Lydia McLaughlin opted not to return to the Real Housewives of Orange County for season 9, most viewers — me included — thought she just didn't want to deal with all the drama. During her season she had to deal with the whole Vicki/Laurie skiing screaming match, if you do recall. But that actually was not the case at all.
The real reason Lydia opted not to return, was in order to focus on having a third baby. After announcing in April that she was pregnant, Lydia is now ready to reveal the baby's gender. In a new interview with OK! magazine, the entrepreneur also talks about some up-coming projects and if she keeps in touch with any of the other housewives.
Lydia and her husband Doug confirmed the baby news. "Lydia is hoping for a girl! Both Lydia and Doug are so excited to be adding to their beautiful family." Lydia is expecting baby #3 in November. Their new baby will join big brothers, Stirling, 5, and Maverick, 3.
Lydia joined RHOC for season 8, but opted not to join the crew for another go – one was apparently plenty for her!
You can see Lydia's adorable baby bump in new photos she shared with Us Magazine.
